Oh, la, la, get your eggs and flour ready and your favourite Italian music on – because it’s Ravioli Day!
Ravioli is any type of filled pasta that’s been sealed up. So, whether you have a penchant for tortellini, the humble ravioli, or the not-so-common agnolotti, they are all types of ravioli and deserve to be celebrated!
It may seem daunting to even consider making ravioli from scratch; and indeed, there are many good ready-made versions available if you are pressed for time or lacking in confidence.
However, you don’t even need a pasta maker to make a nice raviolo (a large, single filled pasta shape) for your dinner. Simply roll out a part of your pasta dough very finely on your worktop, fill with a filling of your choice, seal with a top layer of pasta, and then boil for 2-3 minutes. Serve with a tomato or cream-based sauce for a lovely, memorable meal on this day where we salute the ravioli!
